Welcome to Sydney’s best guided fishing charter…

Guided fishing charters on Sydney Harbour & Hawkesbury R.

Sydney Sportfishing Adventures (SSA) run personalised guided spin and fly fishing charters on Sydney Harbour, Lane Cove River, Broken Bay, Pittwater and the Hawkesbury River, NSW. Professional fishing guide Dan Selby has fished these waterways for 30 years and knows all the best fishing spots.

SSA cater for the experienced angler looking for that next BIG hook up and novices wanting to learn the basics of knots, rigs and techniques plus everything in between. On our fishing charters you can learn how to use soft plastic lures, hard body diving and surface lures and squid jigs plus catching and utilising live baits.

Target species include: Mulloway aka Jewfish, Kingfish, Bream, Bass, Tailor, Salmon, Flathead, Squid and Estuary Perch just to name a few. We aim to use modern tackle, techniques and technology to capture trophy fish for our clients in Australia’s largest city and surrounds. See for yourself, check out some of our recent captures from our fishing tours in the photo gallery.

We also have FISHIN’ TUITION  classes which are held most Sundays. These are two and a half hour on water (in the boat) tutorials where your guide Dan teaches how to cast and retreive soft plastic lures for flathead in the calm sheltered waters of Berowra waters on the Hawkesbury River. Perfect for that quick fishing fix or to add another element to your fishing arsenal. Choose from one of the three time slots- 7am, 10am or 1pm. Please note: these trips are catch and release only. You will be surprised how affordable these trips are, check out our prices here.

The Boat

Clients will fish from a custom fitted center console vessel measuring 5 meters long and is of plate aluminium construction. The vessel is in full AMSA survey and is fully insured for your peace of mind, There is a spacious layout with the new center console upgrade, allowing clients full access to the front and rear casting decks as well as the large cockpit area. Ample rod holders, live bait tank, berley pot, 90lt esky/ice box, LED under gunnel lighting plus navigation lights rounds off this very fishy vessel. Getting us to our fishing spots and back safely and efficently is done by a quiet 70hp Yamaha outboard motor on the transom and a Motor guide Xi5 80lb bow mount electric motor on the pointy end. The electric motor has the latest features available for holding the vessel in position when lure casting. A  sturdy pair of Cannon down riggers are fitted to help get baits and lures down to where the fish are holding and feeding. To find fish holding structure Dan utilises his Lowrance HDS 9 Gen 3 sounder/fish finder and GPS unit to great effect and is more than happy to help clients better understand the finer points of reading sounders while on board.

SSA only uses quality Shimano rods and reels. Currently there is a full complement of T-curve, Terez and Jewel rods matched to Stradic and Saragosa reels in sizes 1000, 2500, 4000 and 8000. These outfits allow clients the right tool for the job when targeting multiple species whilst on charter.
